What materials did you use? Cotton fashion fabric that I purchased 20 years ago in the US. Lining is some synthetic material I found here in Indonesia

What are you most proud of? Matching up the center back and center front seam line of the skirt. That I finished it in time for Easter! Added cap sleeves. I was also one of the many that purchased the wrong size pattern and had to add several inches. I am quite amazed that the project turned out as well as it did and that it actually fits!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. Remember if making the full skirt to let it hang for a few days. My lining really stretched, and so the original seam line from the hem was quite altered.
